Mothers Against Drunk Driving rated Illinois a "Five-Star State", the highest possible rating from the group.

"We are honored to receive this recognition from MADD" says Secretary Ann Schneider.  "We have zero tolerance for drunk driving and along with law enforcement throughout the state, we work hard to put programs in place to keep our motorists safe."

Some of the reasons for Illinois' top rating is for the all-offender ignition interlock law that went into effect in 2009, as well as sobriety checkpoints.

The rating comes from MADD's 2014 Campaign to eliminate Drunk Driving report.
